In an effort to train all field per-
sonnel in emergency aid, the Flor-
ida Forest Service has conducted
Red Cross first aid, schools in six
West Florida counties this summer.
The first aid classes, taught by
William C. Gilbert, forest service
investigator, included care of ac-
cident victims, dressing of wounds,
care of snakebite and dogbite cases,
and other elements of-first aid. The
newest method of artificial respira-
tion was also taught.
"We feel this training makes us
better able to help our own men

Our Country Right or Wrong
THEY WERE WISER IN 1788
As the old adage says, history has a habit of
repeating itself. The following quotation is an
interesting example of that truism: "It has been
found by experience that limitation in the price
of commodities is not only ineffective for the
purpose proposed, but likewise productive of
very evil consequences, to the great detriment
-of the public service and the grievous oppression
. Save for a slight archaism in the language, that
could have been written today. Actually, it is a
resolution passed by the Continental Congress
1way back in 1788-a period when Americans
valued liberty above all alse, and held fast to
the philosophy that that government is best
which governs least.
When will our modern congresses show a little
of .the.wisdom displayed by our forefathers?

CAPTAINS OF THEIR SOULS
Farmers of Wythe county, Virginia, who raise
cattle mostly, and who have lost 75 per cent of
their corn crop and considerable of their hay
crop through the drought, are turning a deaf
ear to the pleas urging them to apply for federal
loans. The 1500 to 1800 farmers of the county
will need $200,000 to $300,000 to tide them over,
but there's $11,000,000 in the banks of Wythe
county, so these independent Americans intend
to take care of their own problems in their own
way and keep their interest money at home.
The Southwest Virginia Enterprise of Wythe-
ville sums up the county attitude this way: "The
. Santa Claus form of government is the only type
of government that is known to at least one,
probably two, generations. Each year, millions of
people believe that Uncle Sam owes.them a liv-
ing. Until the day arrives that the people of
America awaken to the fact that 'you don't get
something for nothing'-even though it comes
from Washington-every child that is born will
be heir to a debt of approximately $1,666.00, or
the new-born's proportional share of the national
debt that now stands at about $260,000,000,000."
Mebbe those Virginia Rebels have something!
WE'RE GOING ON RECORD
When historians look back on the 20th cen-
tury and make their records will they say: "It
was an era of periodic wars, with each war feed-
ing on a general sense of futility, the realization
that each war was breeding greater wars, with
no end in sight." The editor of The Star queries:,
Can we, at the beginning of the atomic age, let
this go down in history? Can't we, as human be-
ings, see something in the future besides war?
Looking at your friend (he ain't ours) Harry
Truman, we realize what is the matter with the
United States the problems of our country are
bigger, but the politicians are still the same size.

HARLAND 0. PRIDGEON
wishes to take this opportunity to express to the people
of Gulf county his deep appreciation for their vote and
support during the election for Tax Collector. It
is hard-in fact impossible-for me to find words to say
how humble and grateful I feel for the honor you have
bestowed upon me. I appreciate particularly the won-
derful vote given me in Port St. Joe and the remainder
of the south portion of the county.
I promise to give service to the people, and I will strive
to do the best job for you as your Tax Collector as is
If you hear any complaints about how the office is
conducted, tell ME about it. If you hear anything
good about how the office is being conducted, tell your
neighbors about it.
